M3architecture was established in 1997 in Brisbane, Australia. Since then, it has grown to include eleven people. With a significant focus on collaboration and the creative design process, M3architecture seeks to develop the idiosyncratic conditions of each project – including site, client, budget and brief – towards the creation of unique and project specific outcomes, rather than uniform or formulaic buildings. This diversity is sustained by the formation of project-specific design teams, in order to make use of the range of talents and interests of individual collaborators from both within the office and from outside of it.

The work of the practice has been recognized at both a national and international level, through numerous publications, awards and exhibitions, including representation in the Australian pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale.
